A summary question will normally direct you to a specific area of the text or to a specific set of information
Exam Tip #3
Try to find and define any difficult vocabulary that you come across
Thinking of other synonyms/antonyms will help your understanding and later make your writing original too by being able to use your own words (p.s: this means extra marks! :) )
Exam Tip #4
-Read the exam question; highlight key instructions
-Read the text carefully with this in mind; similarly highlight the key info
Core or Extended, why not make a few rough notes about key info you come across as you read? You could use this later to help organise your ideas for the specfic exam question requirements
